it's quiet and there are thumbs  
Every now and then I run across one of Steve Oedekerk's insane thumb films on Showtime. Tonight it was The Blair Thumb. It can be difficult to watch these movies, because the thumb people have monstrously distorted, toothy mouths and close-set eyes and no noses. But if you keep watching, it's eventually rather mesmerizing, and the movies--shorts, really--can be fucking hysterical. This one cracked me up. I still don't understand the end of The Blair Witch Project. Kind of a gyp, really. I await closure.

I posted story critique on BBF. I am going to hell.

In other news, I thought I could get away with ignoring work this weekend and pretend my company didn't exist for 48 hours. But it turns out I can't, and that's karma, baby. So I'll just suck it up.

These recent entries are really undeserving of a triple-digit friends list. I harbor a small, blinking hope that someday I'll rebound.

Don't fret. I only read every third entry anyway. Kidding. Even on your "off" days you are far more entertaining than I am. Life is a circle, blah, blah, blah. Looking forward to a rebound, but perfectly content with content as is. Just .02 from one of your 426 (wow!) fans.

The quotes make me realize I have to find these all on tape or something. The dialogue reminds me of the best of MST3K.


do you want orcs? because this is how you get orcskita0610 on July 26th, 2003 03:21 am (UTC)
Your critique was spot on. You're not going to Hell. Sorry, please try again and thanks for playing! :}

Hello...surfing in through links...

It happens to me alot this year too. Hope that you get a chance to relax somewhere in there. marathons are very tough. I've been enjoying the entries... so your saying they get better?

Steve Oedekerk... does thumb movies? On Showtime. Which I continue not to have. Because the universe mocks me.

I will not pick up showtime just for Steve Oedekerk if I won't pick it up for QAF. I will not pick up showtime just for Steve Oedekerk if I won't pick it up for QAF.

I will come up to you at the bar in Hell and offer to buy you a drink for saying exactly what I was thinking about those sentences, both that they weren't run-ons and that the commas weren't where I would have put them.

Okay, really, I'd just be buying you a drink for the comma placement.
